    WOW - looks like you are going to have baby ducks.
    I love that incubator. I wish I could see in mine like that.
    Have you ever hatched duck eggs???
    I did it was harder than chicken eggs, because I needed to keep the humidity level up higher and that was tough.

    GOOD LUCK. Let us wee them when they hatch.

    Great pics , thank you for sharing !!!

    Humidity is very important when hatching ducks. I use to spritz my runner eggs when I turned them .

    Wow, that projector looks to have done a good job. Maybe I'll have to find one of those.
